Over The Moon

Urban Escape Landscapes and Pools have won the Swimming Pool & Spa Association Australia (SPASA) National Pool of the Year 2019. This incredible achievement comes after this project earned owner Nick McCarthy and his team the Pool of the Year award at the 2019 SPASA NSW & ACT Night of Excellence.

Located in Sydney’s north shore, this project included a pool build and landscaping designed and constructed by Urban Escape Landscapes and Pools. The 10m x 4m pool is fully tiled with glass mosaics and features an internal glass spa and ‘floating’ stepping stones. Additional features include automated in-floor cleaning, colour changing lights, a water feature, an outdoor shower and both gas and solar heating. Two multi-speed pumps control the pool and the water feature, while a rainwater tank services the pool and waters the garden through an integrated irrigation system. Every aspect of this impressive design creates a low maintenance, visually appealing backyard oasis.

The landscape design was also completed by Urban Escape. Complete with an outdoor kitchen, timber decking, fire pit, and sandstone pavers and retaining walls, these enviable green spaces and landscaped gardens connect the diverse entertaining areas.

Nick McCarthy and his team saw this project from the earliest consultations with the homeowners to the final unveiling of the impressive pool. The company is blown away to win both the NSW and national awards!

McCarthy founded Urban Escape 23 years ago, utilising his degree in horticulture and landscape design to create impressive outdoor spaces, as well as pool renovations and constructions. This recognition by SPASA is a testament to the successful and impressive work completed by McCarthy and his team every day. Urban Escapes strives to create integrated pool and landscape designs, ensuring a beautiful outcome for every client.
